The Abu Dhabi office has evolved as the hub of the firm's regional practice in Central and South-West Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Within that region, we work closely with our colleagues in Dubai. Elsewhere in the region, the firm has long-standing relationships with correspondent firms of excellence in all of the principal jurisdictions. Our lawyers have considerable experience and are highly regarded by clients and competitors alike. This structure enables Reed Smith to advise and assist clients on the legal aspects of business, not only in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and elsewhere in the United Arab Emirates, but also throughout the region. Our clients include multinational companies in all industry sectors, such as manufacturing, technology, services, utilities, defense and others, other inward investors and trading houses, and other local interests within the region.
